Subtitled The Misadvententures of an Indadequate Teacher says enough. Thrift by Phil Church is a kind of story I kept wondering about. What’s the reason for writing this? Why telling this? Nothing really happens, no developments. A teacher can’t control his class, is accused of being homosexual, but doesn’t really care, is asked to direct a Hamlet play, without really being engaged. The book’s stuffed with quotes from books and songwriters, art forms I care about much. But this book wasn’t my cup of tea.
